They have really thrilling rides. The Goliath ride is great. However, I would advise bringing a picnic to have at your car for lunch. The food is so over-priced. Souvenirs are too. They will give you free cups of water if it is really hot....More

We love Six Flags but make sure you know what to do and when to do it. Get there before it opens. If they open at 10:30, be at the gate before 10 a.m. Then, go to the best ride you want to go to...More

Very unlikely. There are too many coasters and the wait times can be lengthy. You do however have the availability to purchase a fast pass which enables you to go to the front of the lines.
